Maybe it's because I went to Target today, but I think I'm going to challenge myself to another low spending/low consumption week. This one I want to call "Do I really need all that crap?" week. I want to have a week (and if I can, expand it to a month, and then hopefully to a lifetime) where I ask myself truthfully about everything I am going to buy, "Do I really need that?" If the answer is no, or that I do but I can make it out for resources I already have, then I don't buy it. I know this isn't in the same vein as no trash week, but it might be an easier one to maintain. And I don't want to be too starry eyed about it either, I include time in the resource question. It doesn't matter if that I have all the yarn in the world, I am not going to be able to knit a blanket before my cousin comes to town and I need to cover her up at night, so I will need to buy one. But if I can make a nutritious dinner out of what I have in the fridge, then I don't buy anything new, and if I do, I only buy what I need to compliment what I already have.
I need to think more about the rules, because "need" can be a little subjective. But if you are inclined to try it with me, leave a comment and I'll get back soon with my dates and definitions.
Happy June everyone-thus far mine is looking better than May!
